Game 69 Thread: PHI @ SAC

I have a good feeling about this one. The 76ers are well coached, they like playing with each other, and everybody knows and embraces their role. From what I observe, The Kings as a team have none of those attributes.

The Hawks will lose - they're down 30 now. We should get to within 3 games. Next they face the Pistons, Bulls and us, so by the time we face them, we'll possibly have a chance to close within 1.5 games.

Tray reply to Tray on Mar 18 at 21:18

LeBron, incidentally, has 36 on 14-17 shooting in that game, through 3 quarters.

Tray reply to Tray on Mar 18 at 21:45

Make that 43 through three, actually. 16-21 shooting, 23 in the third.

Pistons still have a chance to beat the Knicks

Not if Charlie V. keeps passing the ball to people sitting in the second row.

Down to six. Every Detroit possession I've seen has ended with either a wide open dunk or a wide open layup.

I like the way Ben Gordon plays.

any where I can see the game online tonight?

jason you could try links on these:



3-point game in Detroit. Wilcox is physically dominating Stoudemire.

Tie game. I love Charlie V.

jason you could try links on these:



GO 'STONES! (btw stones = lamest team nickname ever)

jasonm reply to joeykey on Mar 18 at 22:33


Pistons take the lead.

lockdown D by the pistons or is the knicks O breaking down

Looks like they get an open three whenever they move the ball. They get stoned whenever Melo or Amare iso.

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 21:43

My wish for the night - the guys play with the same passion, grit, and desire they came out with in the second half Wed night. They were ferocious, just fierce at times after Doug got tossed. They should keep the tape of that one handy for film session before the playoffs start.

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 21:46

Did someone mention Stuckey going off? heh

Detroit had 9 guys play 20+ minutes tonight. I'd really hate to play on a team like that.

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 21:49

Wilcoxxx! D up! please

eddies' heady's reply to eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 21:51

think he got the o-board too right after those two plays.


76ers have a real chance to move up in the standings tonite. very exciting.

Every time the knicks have lost in the past week or so they've had a chance...they've blown it each time.

I'm not sure why it's more exciting tonight, maybe because it's just more likely they'll win?

Actually, none of those games really broke like this, where we knew they lost and had a chance to move past them. It was after the fact, and it wasn't expected the Knicks would lose. This time, we know going in.

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 21:53

Mark this upcoming game as more imperative...

Yeah really.

eddies' heady's reply to CB on Mar 18 at 21:57

I like em like that though, better than the alternative - possessing no meaning.

anyone want to see a Hawesome commercial before the game starts?


eddies' heady's reply to das411 on Mar 18 at 22:00

not really but I would like for someone to post that Sixers song if we win tonight. sounds better everytime I listen to it...

How 'bout them Pistons?

Win tonight, and we're in sole possession of sixth. Gotta get it done.

And then most likely tied for it tomorrow ;)

God damn over time game

Sacto feed in HD tonight on league pass for me.

Tray reply to Brian on Mar 18 at 22:07

Some of the most dreadful announcers in the league. The guy says things like "slammin Sammeh" and "don't dare to mess with Samuel Dalem-BEAR"... he probably says something like "bueno from Beno" too.

I wonder if this is the earliest any time has clinched their division.

God the Central division blows

According the the kings feed, Sammy D is motivated 2 nite. lol

He'll out play Hawes (not that that's difficult)

I'm sure the sixers feed has similar nonsense about Hawes

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:10

sac announcers are a rare breed...ha

I think he likes it better in sactown according to the interview I just saw, but i remember him demanding a trade earlier in the season. He's going to be an interesting piece in free agency if he goes to the right team. The first one that comes to mind is the hawks.

Here we go. Sammy vs. Hawes for the tip.

That looked a lot like Hawes on Cousins

Just saying

Hawes got to the tip, but he guided it right to DMC. Hawes on Cousins to start, and he settles for an 18-foot fallaway.

Dumb shot from Cousins.

WTF - Sam learned to dribble? Son of a bitch

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:13

HA, the "goon squad", that's probably where Spencer wanted to be when he was playing out there...

nice pass mr cousins - sac announcers absolve him of blame

Don't know if I blame that on Cousins or Dalembert's infamous hands.

AI breaks the seal

If this turns into some kind of Sammy revenge game I'm gonna be pissed.

The sixers defensive front court kind of sucks

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:15

Man, it was just one time, but everybody looked to have good legs on that push and Dre finish.

Cousins or Dalembert

Jesus - just go to brand in the post - they'll foul him

Man, Iguodala has a HUGE advantage w/ Garcia on him. He can go right by him at will.

And he can shoot over Jodie - at will

They did swap the defensive matchup. AI9 on Thornton.

Putrid start

Hawes is getting the business from his former followers.

5-straight for Jrue.

Cousins blocked twice, argues w/ the ref instead of getting back on D.

See that - Brand intimidated by a guy who used to be here?

Turnover Cousins = AI9 dunk on the other end.

TS reply to Brian on Mar 18 at 22:21

Don't even think he bothered getting back to half court after he turned it over.

Retarded no-look from Cousins.

hard to believe the Kings are an NBA team.

...maybe it's the injuries.

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:21

Isn't Garcia rather taller than Jodie too? iow, how much less than Casspi?

I think Casspi's pushing 6'10", isn't he?

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Mar 18 at 22:28

don't know...was wondering since you mentioned it

This Lebron Sprite commercial is awful

Please go to Elton so he can get Sam his 2 fouls - this is stupid

Sammy is no Payton.

Andre - too many passes - stop showing off

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:24

We need to get out and run and get early offense...

like that....ugh he misses it...but we need to push it..

Jrue J.

Jrue is kind of dominating on both ends right now.

Jinx him did you?

Went for the double, no one rotated to beno on that three. the two was fine, chased him off the three.

So you're allowed to make excuses for players then :)


He just picked up his third steal that Iguodala pissed away on the break.

I'm just messing with you - you alright - you've been kind of testy today - someone break your bracket?

Sissy hook!

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:25

hawesome left hand....heh

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:25

Jrue with another sweet jumpshot, good form.

God Hawes - for a 7 footer you are just weak

Jrue needs to not lose Beno so this announcer can shut up about the classic Beno Drano.

Cousins fouled Iguodala on that fast break - I can't believe they didn't call it

Jodie 0/3 from three.

Solid teammates Marcus Thornton has, huh? Guy's writhing on the floor and they just run a play instead of calling a timeout.

Tray reply to Brian on Mar 18 at 22:29

He's kind of the only reason they're ever competitive in most games too. That was pathetic.

This really is not looking like a professional basketball game

jkay reply to Mike on Mar 18 at 23:00

Kings defensive strategy: baiting Sixers to take jumpshots when they can get to the rim at ease.

Houston is up 25 on the Celtics right now.

Boston's just bad on the road these days - I mean the freaking Nets beat em (and well the nets are playing better in the new year - come on Celtics)

Spencer Flaws on Mar 18 at 22:28

number 23 for the kings is terrible.

#23 for the sixers kind of sucks too

No, he's actually pretty good.

Meeks pulled

Lou and Thad in for Sissy and Jodie.

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:31

Let's go Lou, they have no one that can guard you.

I'd like to see this lead balloon to 10 in the next minute. Ugh, maybe not. Garcia three.

What happened to Jason Thompson - was that feel good thing out of college just BS?

Someone wanna guard that garcia fella?

Jodie's out of the game, can't blame him :)

Jrue hot in the first quarter

When that happens Doug usually goes away from him

He'll sit for the first six minutes of the second and cool off.

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Mar 18 at 22:37

He has to sit, there's bigger games than this one, this kid's never played near this many games.

And at half time Doug will focus the offense away from him in the second half.

So stupid - Doug - it's his team

Jrue three.

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:33

Lou 3!

Lou - finding new ways to screw up that end of quarter play

That was a new kind of awful for him.

Well yeah - he picked up his dribble - he doesn't do that :)

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:34

Beno can't keep shooting like this....Lou, pass the ball come on.....

Epic BOSS iso to end the qtr.

Lou three.

Beno draino.

Iso for double figs.


PHI 32, SAC 23 after one.

Upset alert in the 3 active games going on in the ncaa tourney right now - UNLV is down freaking 22 in the early 2nd

Lou with another incredible end-of-quarter iso!

BTW- the 3's by the Kings- none against Meeks.

If by that you mean Meeks wasn't guarding any of them - that's incorrect - he was on Garcia for his first one

tk76 reply to tk76 on Mar 18 at 22:36

At least I'm pretty sure. The 1st was against Jrue IIRC, but maybe it was Meeks?

The others definitely not involving Meeks.

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:35

It feels like we barely played or tried that quarter, yet we're up 9? wow

I've got 32 points on roughly 24 possessions for the Sixers in the first. 23 on 24 for Sacto. 4 on 6 for Cousins.

Sixers had numbers there and Lou just slowed it down for no reason to drive into 4 Kings.

Lou had a reason - trust me

So seriously - someone besides Tray - what the hell happened with Thompson - he was kind of touted

I didn't think he was that highly touted. I think he was a late riser, like he did really well in workouts and everyone oohed and ahhed over him, then Sacto reached for him.

He got a lot of coverage leading up thte draft cause he went to Rider - maybe it was just going to rider.

Jrues brothers team is getting bitch slapped (and playing like crap) UGA has length on UW at every position

Tray reply to GoSixers on Mar 18 at 22:45

Everyone said that pick was a reach. He hasn't really developed much from his rookie season, under a series of lousy coaches, and this year behind Cousins he's getting the least time he's ever gotten.

Airball Cousins. Should count as a turnover too

24 second violations are team turnovers right?


eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:39

Let's go bench brigade.

Box out....get a body on em...

Go jew Brother

I'm pretty sure Cousins gets the ball in the high post so much because he's so lazy getting up the floor. It's like they run three or four seconds of offense, then he comes into the picture, so they pass him the ball up there.

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Mar 18 at 22:43

Yeah, he just looks like the initiator pass.


eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:41

The Sac announcer: Evan will eventually be a SF, his size and quickness will give him an advantage.

Yeah, they're bad.....

Stupid foul, Battie. Lou had a dunk if he didn't slip on that last play.


I almost wish teams would make their FT's against the Sixers. Can't stand seeing the get O-Boards.

Why is ET so afraid to go to the rim?

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:45

Thornton, Brian liked him before he came out i think?

Nah, I think Stefanski liked him. Didn't they work him out twice?

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Mar 18 at 22:50

Don't give Stef that much credit...ha. thought you mentioned him a few times on here way back when? kind of hipped me to him....i thought

Pretty sure Douglas was the guy I liked late in that draft. Can't remember though. I know I wasn't excited about Meeks and didn't want Ellington.

I liked him in the draft. Really bad game today, but he has been scoring 22 a game pretty efficiently for them. He's a very good shooter.

Pretty, pretty pass, Thad.

What's Batties season high in points?

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:46

Great play and positioning by Thad.

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:47

Terrible spin by Thad, never appeared to look at the rim.

Thad a bit awkward looking tonight, but hustling.

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:47

Where did Jetter(?) play at in college?

eddies' heady's reply to eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:48


Turner got raped over the back on that board.

The sixers are lucky the kings bench sucks cause the sixers bench is doing nothing.

(That was over the top by the kings - stupid refs)

Didn't see that Cousins turnover coming from a mile away.

And jrue misses his first look after his very very long rest

Well played Collins, well played

eddies' heady's reply to GoSixers on Mar 18 at 22:52

Come on man, don't blame his first play back on DC...

Well played eddy, well played

There is no we in team

Does Cousins get the assist on his TO?

The announcers have a point - the kings aren't playing well and the sixers aren't playing well either

Jrue... terrible D

Who was supposed to help on that drive? Jrue was sending him to someone.

tk76 reply to Brian on Mar 18 at 22:50

The rim?

That's what it looked like, but he turned and pointed like he was passing him off if he drove that way. Eh, whatever.

Excuses, excuses, ecsues ;)

Heh. Sactown announcers wondering if that was really a block...

That was the rare case where Beno didn't even have one foot set.

Anyone see that catch by Payton?

Jesus, grab a fucking d-board.

This team is going to get whacked on the offensive glass come playoff time

Flop. Terrible.

Wow. Udrih with the rare behind-the-back flop. I'm not even mad

They have attack dogs at Kings game?

Man Sacramento is so white trash

tk and brian hate that Iguodala jumper

HA! Good call.

Foot on the line, Andre. That's a fine.

Has Jrue missed both jumpers since his return from his very very long rest?

tk76 reply to GoSixers on Mar 18 at 22:59

Perhaps he is an inconsistent player who can't give you 2 great qtrs in a row?

Aren't good players supposed to be able to continue good play after sitting 5 minutes of game time?

eddies' heady's reply to tk76 on Mar 18 at 23:02

Exactly, why not? Warm-ups are over...that is, if you're good enough to do that

Hate that 22 footer Iggy.

tk76 reply to tk76 on Mar 18 at 22:57

That one too. Lazy.

I'm going with petulant

Jrue and Andre yelling at each other followed by an awful offensive possession.

That bodes well

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 22:57

Comw on, get this lead to 18 or better....

turnover, ugh...TO doug c

Payton w/ the INT.

This should really be like 20 now.

Didn't like that 18-footer Jrue took in transition, wonder if it gets him benched for Meeks out of this timeout. He was about to check in, probably for Turner.

Meeks in for Turner.

Since that little tete a tete between Jrue and Andre the sixers offense has sucked and Andre has been more shooting less passing

I didn't see it, what were they arguing about?

Kings had an inbounds play under the basket - the kings got an easy two - Iguodalas man (ostensibly) but Iguodala was jawing at Jrue immediately. Iguodala has been shooting crap and doing stupid stuff ever since

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 23:00

More Meeks, but some say he's a marginal player.

Not only are you passive aggressive, but the NBA is limited with marginal players who get 20 minutes per game you petulant child. Everyone look at eddy - he has a point to make - approve of him approve of him - tell him how ever so smart he is

eddies' heady's reply to GoSixers on Mar 19 at 11:38

"I see it the way of most people - yo usee it the way of no one but yourself.

You don't see reality."

Remember this?
What's reality looking like now?
You are a follower right? I mean, you see it the "way of most people". lol at Brian busting out the Meeks post yesterday,.. you love to ride shotgun and he opened the door for you to get in...

Thought I was alone didn't you?.. "you see it only your way"..how's that looking right about now? lolllllll, you're a hoot man, you really are.....ha

eddies' heady's reply to GoSixers on Mar 19 at 13:56

Do your panties suddenly get in a wad when you resort to your frequent name calling? lol at the irony of calling someone else a child...heh

btw, if the NBA is "limited" with players like Jodie, that makes him even more special, no?

No more long Iggy jumpers pls...

tk76 reply to tk76 on Mar 18 at 23:04

Another. But again got the O Board

Too many turnovers, come on. Just make the simple play, move the ball and you're going to get good looks against this defense.

That's at least partly on Meeks...

now that's just crazy.

eddies' heady's on Mar 18 at 23:03

EB with the hook?

Cousins hacked Iguodala, and I still don't think he walked. At least Cousins turned it over and committed a foul.

Collins needs to take Iguodala out - he's playing like shit since that thing with Jrue - it's pathetic

jkay reply to GoSixers on Mar 18 at 23:06

i agree. save his legs, the subs can even win this one.

The subs played like crap against the kings subs and couldn't stretch the lead.

Iguodala should be benched for poor ass play (and 'leadership') as much as a guy like Jrue gets benched.

jkay reply to GoSixers on Mar 18 at 23:15

Iguodala's making poor decisions. I agree with that.

But this game is quite pathetic; I believe the subs can pull it out. That's just how poor the Kings are playing right now. We should be up by 40. Thank goodness for Thad.

That was shit. It's never called.

Meeks was quick to that o-board. Nice play.

Love watching Jrue run the break.

20 seconds time out with 29.2 to play and the offense pressing to get an advantage.

Over coaching?

Actually, if he draws up a play, I like it. He should do it at the end of every quarter to get this team used to running a set play to end quarters instead of those fucking Lou isos.

If that set that led to Jodie losing the ball and a bad shot by elton was the play he drew up - i'd rather he let the natural athleticism run the show

20-second timeout, you think he's actually going to draw a play up for this final possession (for the Sixers, at least).

Based on that rebound attempt- I think Jrue really wants a triple double.

He also pushed Thad almost out of bounds going after another one.

Thad has 8 boards in 11 minutes.

tk76 reply to Brian on Mar 18 at 23:09

Jrue 15/5/3. He's definitely tracking a non PTD.

EB, buckets, count it just because it was awesome.

PHI 55, SAC 38 at the half.

Jrue chasing a non-pathetic triple double: 15 pts, 5 boards, 3 assists, 4 steals.

Anybody have a link where I can watch the game? At the in-laws this week, with no Sixers : ( some one save me

Speights had 0 minutes didn't he?

tk76 reply to GoSixers on Mar 18 at 23:11

And zero T's.

I think the NBA should institute the 'game suspension' rule for coaches too (or do they?)

Nice that doug gave speights a chance for like a week - i'd love some writer to ask him what exactly abouut Speights he hates so much (or at least why he got sent to the doughouse (TM) again)

tk76 reply to GoSixers on Mar 18 at 23:14

Every coach hates Speights. Probably for the same reason they all love Willie Green.

jkay reply to tk76 on Mar 18 at 23:16

wow: well put.

THey're morons?

jkay reply to GoSixers on Mar 18 at 23:22

say all you want about Willie Green's play: he was almost universally loved, high character guy with an impressive work ethic.

He was a terrible basketball player a volume shooter who couldn't draw a foul, or pass, or defend.

Lou at least draws fouls

So who gets more ESPN love for their 40+ pts (any hardly any reb/assts) Lebron or the new golden boy Rose?

Did Rose hit a three at the buzzer to send it into OT?

tk76 reply to Brian on Mar 18 at 23:16

No. 3 FT's.

Head 2 Head match up - they're considered the two leading MVP candidates - they're wetting their pants

Tray reply to tk76 on Mar 18 at 23:19

LeBron did it in three quarters, Rose needed overtime... LeBron took 21 shots and 7 foul shots, Rose took 27 shots and 21 foul shots. And scored one less point, while fouling out.

Josh reply to Los5782 on Mar 18 at 23:22

Awesome thanks so much!

Alvin reply to Los5782 on Mar 18 at 23:39

thanks a lot!

I hope everyone's watching this halftime show. Cousins drinking a gallon of Hawaiian Punch and eating sour patch kids while showing the maturity of a 6-year-old.

I've got some sort of asinine NBA TV interruptoin that is a fashion competition between Saeger and Frazier

It would be great to see both Iggy and Jrue get triple doubles tonight.... and it get completely ignored because they are not stars.

Halftime viewing - Ghostbusters

Nobody Choosed Anything

I think the Sixers gameplan coming in was to keep Cousins out of foul trouble. It's far too valuable to have him taking bad shots, jogging back on defense and turning the ball over.

Classic Bargs box score:

41 min, 33 pts, 1 d-board (3 overall(

If Marcus Thornton was good enough, he'd go Iguodala's list from that first half.

Jrue and Meeks need to switch that back screen.

Junk Punch Hawes- JUNK PUNCH

Sissy three, in and out.

Cousins knew he dribbled it off his feet even if the ref is blind

Heh, Cousins just threw a pass off Iguodala's forehead.

ANd Iguodala passed it to Cousins

Terrible pass by Iguodala, bailed out on the other end.

Blown bunny after a pretty move by Jrue.

AI9 w/ one of those nice board-to-assist plays, hunting the trip-dub.

Maybe a quad-dub if he keeps turning the ball over like this. Brand just stole a board from Jrue :(

And then cost him an assist.

Jrue just stole one from Hawes

ill tell ya this now, I LOVE MEEKS, kid plays with heart


The Sixers are lucky they're playing a crappy team tonight

They're up by 26, on the road. There really isn't a whole lot to complain about.

They're playing like shit against one of the worst teams in the league.

The game shouldn't even be this close and you know it

Mike reply to GoSixers on Mar 18 at 23:31

Eh, I think they'd be playing a bit tighter basketball if they were up against tougher competition. And now they're up by 26, so...

Man, Cousins has some poor body language. As talented as he may be, I am glad we dont have to worry about whether if he ever breaks that habit.

Some really shitty basketball happening right now.

no kidding bout Jrue hunting for those boards.

Jodie 3. Up 26.

Finally, Jodie gets an open 3 to fall.

Mr. Meeks for three!!!!!

I really hate the way Iguodla is going 'lou' until he dribbles into the crowd right now - Doug really should be benching him

Who gets the trip/dub first?

Jrue 15/7/4
AI9 11/6/8

I don't think either plays long enough to get it. They have another tomorrow night, Doug's going to get them extensive rest, if he can.

I feel for Kings fans. That team is going nowhere with a washed up Paul Westphal.

Hoping we can save some legs for the tough back-to-backer tomorrow night.

This one is fun to watch.

You're wrong. They will be going somewhere... to Anaheim. Poor Sactown.

Yeah, poor sactown, if only their team wasn't originally stolen from somewhere else.

Might be up near 40 if Jodie hits these open 3s.

He knows I played him tonight cause I needed 3's

Man we gave Jodie some props and jinxed him.

Damnit, Iguodala and Brand both just blew assists for Jrue. He got another board, though.

Can't buy a bucket.

Outside ref called that a charge, don't think it was, though. Cousins is doing damage, all it takes is for them to be down 20+, apparently.

Tray reply to Brian on Mar 18 at 23:38

I have to admit that even when he makes a good move he looks like he's out of control.

The Alex Rodriguez of NBA Centers

Yeah, right, that makes sense

The gist of that was the perception that ARod only put up numbers in blowouts.

The perception was never actually accurate - Cousins will never be the best in the game - A-Rod was for a long while (even while morons were saying stuipd shit)

weak, Hawes, weak

How about VCU!!!!!! Letting me get to the sixers game early :).

Jrue gets that one, right? For saving it to Thad.

jkay reply to Brian on Mar 18 at 23:43

not enough dimes Brian, give up.
ironically it's Iggy that'll probably get it. that's a joke.

TS reply to Brian on Mar 18 at 23:43

They gave it to him. He's at 15/9/5. AI9 13/7/9.

Iggy may get to the triple double.

Ugh. 1/5 from the line for Iguodala.

Turner with some garbage minute baskets

Josh reply to GoSixers on Mar 18 at 23:45

To a bad team too. Maybe we should petition the NBA to not count these baskets for ET.

Cousins turnover to give Lou one more iso!

PHI 80, SAC 54 after three.

They gave that last turnover to Beno, but it was the lazy Cousins pass that caused it.

Iguodala 13/7/9/3
Jrue 15/9/5/4

Don't think either gets the triple-double, though.

at least play em long enough to get the double double

If Iguodala gets back in the game, he'll get it. He turns into a monster when he's seeking boards.

just sit the starters ok?
unleash the Noc!

I'd like to see Jrue get the quad five.

I can hear Collins yelling at Turner for getting smoked on that drive.

Never yells at Thad for those terrible jumpers he's not going to make.

Seriously - I think Speights is now officially done for the season?

Oh man, the Sacramento feed is sad. Going into the break, they did a montage of the like, three good things that have happened for the Kings this entire game.

Do the Sixers at least get credit for making a bad team look like a D-league team?

jkay reply to Mike on Mar 18 at 23:51

No. but they get the Win.

Come on, bench. Don't screw this up. I want 40+ added to the season differential.

If he rides these 5 - i say it's no more than 25

but do you want that more than you want to see more BRACK SHOW??

He's not active tonight (I checked) :)

Come on lou - just cause it's a blow out doesn't mean you can be stupid - doug will bench you.

Oh wait, it's lou, not evan, or jrue, or speights

The Kings are shooting 30.6% from the floor.

Speights headed to the scorer's table.

If you're resting your starters you should rest your priamry bench guys too you'd think? Give us Kapono and Nocioni

Who's wearing a bad suit tonight, Brackins and Songaila?

If they push this to 30, he'll probably clear the bench and let Turner run the point for the final 6 minutes or so.

I know Brackins is inactive, Songaila probably the other.

Man - girls in Sacramento - trying so hard but still just not getting it right

Can ET run the point please?

Battie - PEDs?

battie with some spring in his legs for the putback dunk.

Evan Turner never drives to the basket.

This one doesn't count, obviously.

Neither do the ones earlier in the game

Speights vs. Cousins in the lazy bowl.

I'd say it's even money that Speights draws a charge on Cousins, if DeMarcus actually decides to come below the foul line on offense one of these trips down the floor.

Thad with a horrible jumper and Speights with no effort to get the offensive board (and he had position)

Then let's cousins do that

Sigh Mareese - you just don't wanna do you?

Pretty sure Cousins just scored that hoop for the Sixers.

Turner just sublimely uninterested in what's going on on the offensive end here.

Cause he had the fast break - but was forced to hand it off to the lesser 'point guard' for reasons passing understanding and then the lesser point guard was demanding it back again. If the lesser point guard would just let Evan run the offense, we'd all be fine

Did Cousins put that in?

Did DMC just score on himself?

I thought so. Didn't some Colombian soccer player get shot for doing that once?

Yup, I truly suggest watching the 30 for 30 on it called "the two escobars"

World Cup 94 in US.

even in a blowout game, DC still miffed.
I don't blame him.

Remembering who gets in trouble for making mistakes in who doesn't can be confusing.

Nocioni at the scorers table

I want kapownage.

ask and ye shall receive.


Lou is still playing ...

I feel like Cousins vs. Speights is like the first sign of the apocalypse.

Red Sox Phillies world series is a temporary apocalypse in my house

Well, you don't have to worry about that.

Just a bitter bitter man

AJ Burnett come back - that's the yankees #3 option huh?:)

I have more faith in the Shoney's buffet when Joba and Colon go out for dinner than I do in Burnett.

Sabathia knows that he shouldn't try to look like Prince Fielder right?

He slimmed down. Stopped eating boxes (plural) of Captain Crunch every day. He's also better than anyone the Phils have.

Whether or not he's better than Roy Halladay is a matter of debate.

However, you need more than one pitcher, and the philies number 5 would be the third best pitcher in the yankees rotation :)

Rich reply to Brian on Mar 19 at 3:23

I found this funny Brian. Definitively saying anyone is better than Doc is just lunacy. Didn't you pay attention when he consistently beat up on the Yankees with Toronto?

Sixers should give Speights to the kings to insure that Cousins never turns into a reliable player.

Then hire Charlie Sheen as their special assistant coach. He will teach them the "winning" ways.

omg this is hilarious

Kapono Speights AND NOcioni all at once

You look at his line (19 and 12 on 13 shots, 3 assists, 1 steal, 4 turnovers), and you wouldn't really know Cousins had a pretty lousy game.

Statistically, one of his better games.

jkay reply to Tray on Mar 19 at 0:10

considering Jrue's game wasn't all that impressive, I could give him player of the game honors.
for different reasons of course.

Nocioni can't buy a hoop.

I was hoping Cousins would get the chance to foul out.

The 3rd team trying to get brian his 40

Kapono will get us there!

Garbage minutes or not, I just don't understand why you don't use Meeks and Turner together more, or why you don't have Turner handle the ball when he's out there with Lou. Do they just want to not let Evan do what he does well and force him to always be a SG to get used to it?

Lou Williams is the back up point guard.

Turner and Jodie in there now w/out Jrue. Soak it in.

Damnit, back down to 25.

KAP-OH-no :(

Speights just got an assist?


eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Mar 19 at 0:56

well played.

Gonna wind up under 20 at this rate. Those guys should be ashamed of themselves.

22 - i was close on my 25 prediction

Wasn't gonna get to 40 without the starters

PHI 102, SAC 80 Final.

Portland is playing real well of late.
Rose Garden; should be fun.
Go 6th place Sixers!!

Kapono is down to 20% from three this season. 1/5.

Tray reply to Brian on Mar 19 at 0:26

Is he really so awful that he can't be brought in to spot up for threes? I didn't realize we had played him that little.

He was a starter when the season began!

Defense was terrible when the bench came in. I think the Kings scored on their last 20 possessions, and a few of them were And-1s.

Iguodala after the game on his knee: "It's hurting, It's a little bit tough to shoot, stand for the jump shots before the game, gotta keep it real light, but I'm trying to work my way into the game without being too explosive..."

...do i sense that his case of McNabb disease is about to get a whole lot worse if they start losing??

Not sure what you mean by McNabb disease.

McNabb disease = good guy, tries hard, plays through injuries, but for some reason Philly media and therefore fans start to hate on the team's best player if they don't put up wins...

Gotcha. He achieved that level about two years ago.

"Collins tells media that Dre will not play at Portland (giving him 5 days rest), adds its 'nothing serious' w/ rt knee; EB also may sit"

Tray reply to Jason on Mar 19 at 0:33

Oh no, that will be a loss without him. It would definitely be a loss without both.

EB's playing. AI9 is out. Fuck me.

wes Johnson with a very big game vs lakers.

Tom Moore on Mar 19 at 0:41

Sixers down Kings, move into sixth in East


Several of these games are worth some time and are actually quite fun. acgdaaedgegdeced
